Kimberly Michelle Pate, better known as “K. Michelle”, has a somewhat new and growing reputation within the music industry. At just 32 years old, K. Michelle has been around for some time. However, she has recently gained more attention in 2012 after appearing on VH1’s hit show Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta. The singer, songwriter, actor and pianist is not only multi-talented, but well-connected within the industry. She has done work with notorious artist R. Kelly, and is currently producing albums under the Atlantic Records label. Pate’s fame and talent did not arise from nowhere. At a young age, she took lessons from Bob Westbrook, the same early trainer for both Justin Timberlake and Britney Spears. Despite having done some of her early work with famed artist Missy Elliott, Pate and Elliott had a very public quibble over Pate’s social media declaration that Nicki Minaj was the “Queen of Rap” (and not Elliott). Pate recently declared that the two have effectively buried their beef.
